Governor Announces Mandatory Water Use Reductions

April 10, 2015 

Following the lowest snowpack ever recorded and with the State facing a severe drought, on April 1st, Governor Brown directed the State Water Resources Control Board to require water suppliers to implement mandatory water reductions to reduce statewide water usage by 25 percent. This action is designed to better protect the state’s limited water supply, prevent wasteful water use, streamline the state's response and invest in new drought resilient technologies. The City’s water supplier is the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD), who will soon be issuing more detailed guidelines regarding local implementation of these requirements. More information will be posted as it becomes available.

For additional information about the drought or tips for how community residents may assist in reducing water usage, please visit the East Bay Municipal Utility District’s Drought Update web page.
